Broker's Comments

What a lovely looking craft which would be at home taking passengers on various uses. This craft was built as a "Gentleman's Launch" it combines an outdoor feel plus a closed area on the upper deck with all good round vision. The covers can be removed or indeed, obtain many options subject to requirements. Below decks she seems and looks very sound with no visual signs of attention needed, this is the same for the hull which I liked the varnish effect. The large upper deck area has an open plan with the tables & chairs and galley all free standing. The lower seating area is well below the gunwales to enable protection from the wind. The engine is robust enough to handle most inland waters. This is an ideal opportunity to obtain a trip/ ferry/party boat at a very realistic price. It has a MCA ticket (valid until 21/02/2013) for up to 54 passengers + 2 crew but comfortably I would say 30- 40 plus, subject to the function and requirements.The open area below could do with some varnish work to bring a wow factor back to her. She has an yearly survey as a passenger vessel.
